What if there was a volunteering programme where you could hone an arsenal of slick new skills, broaden your experiences and save people’s lives? You’ve guessed it. There is. 

Anthony Nolan’s six-month Youth Ambassador programme gives you the chance to volunteer for a total of 26 hours, all to help our charity cure people’s blood cancer. By recruiting lifesaving stem cell donors to our iconic register and raising much-needed funds, you’ll help us to give a hope of survival to those who need it.

Youth Ambassadors

What’s Anthony Nolan all about?

Anthony Nolan is the charity that makes lifesaving connections between people with blood cancer and incredible strangers who donate their stem cells. Every year, over 2,000 people begin the search for a matching stem cell donor who can save their life. We need your help, recruiting potential donors and raising vital funds so that we can cure their blood cancer.

Are you a teacher looking for a volunteering programme for your students?

If you’re a teacher, youth leader or Duke of Edinburgh leader and are looking for a stimulating and educating volunteering programme for a group of young people, then you’re in the right place.

We’ve designed a six-month programme of volunteering, approved for the Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award, that offers participants a range of exciting challenges, new experiences and the chance to learn and develop practical skills. 

The programme can be delivered either in school or another peer-to-peer environment, and can be undertaken by volunteers individually or in groups. From start to finish, all of their volunteering will help us to cure blood cancer.

Research shows that young people make the best stem cell donors, leading to better outcomes for patients – so we know the power of young people!
